Below are a selection of resources produced by HCWH Europe and The Hospital Centre (CH) of Niort on the topic of fresh, healthy, and sustainable food in healthcare, and food waste.


On 3 June 2019, the Hospital of Niort hosted the one-day workshop: Food waste and nutrition in healthcare facilities: developing a circular economy. This event brought together over 60 healthcare, nutrition, and catering professionals to discuss how healthcare can play a key leadership role in making food a fundamental part of health and healing by reducing the environmental impact.


Food waste constitutes a significant loss of economic resources for a hospital center and leads to additional consumption of food materials which can cause environmental degradation and have an effect on our health.
